Eurocrypt 2009 Conference Poster

The Eurocrypt 2009 conference posters will be sent on a first-come, first-serve basis and should be available at the end of 2008. To have a reasonable estimate on the number of conference posters needed, we have opened this request form already now. The conference posters will be in A1 portrait format (60x84cm / 2x2.75ft) or in A2 portrait format ( 42x60cm / 1.4x2ft) and are sent free of charge. You can request your own conference poster(s) using our Eurocrypt 2009 conference poster request form.

An A4-version of the poster can also be downloaded or an A1/A2-Version can be ordered.

Instructions for Authors

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published in a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings, or has submitted/is planning to submit before the author notification deadline to a journal or other conferences/workshops that have proceedings. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or workshop that has proceedings.

All papers will be refereed by at least three people, whilst papers by program committee members will be refereed by at least five people. Program committee members are restricted to one submission each.

Students only paper: When all the authors of a submitted paper are students, they may, if they wish to so, indicate this fact on the submission page, by ticking the appropriate box.

Conference Proceedings

Proceedings will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science and will be available at the conference. Instructions about the preparation of a final proceedings version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers. The final versions of the accepted papers will be due on January 23rd, 2009.

Poster Session

In addition to the mainstream session, Eurocrypt 2009 will experiment with a poster session. Submissions for the poster session should take the form of an abstract of at most 8 pages in llncs style. The poster submissions should essentially follow the same rules as the mainstream submissions. In particular, they should be anonymous. Unless explicitly specified by the submitting author, all mainstream submissions will also be considered for the poster session.

In addition to the allowed mainstream submission, program committee members are restricted to two poster submissions.

Authors of accepted abstracts for the poster session must guarantee that they will have a poster presenting the technical content of their abstract available for presentation at the conference poster session. Poster session papers will not be included in the proceedings, however, an official list of accepted posters will be announced.
